Superfast Express from Chandigarh to Amritsar
September 04, 2012 11:05 AM



CHANDIGARH: Chandigarh Amritsar Superfast Express will be introduced from September 11 with halts at Ludhiana and Jalandhar, as there was a demand for these stoppages.

The new train will have lesser fare as compared to the Duronto. The fare is less as there would be no catering service that was available in Duronto. However there will be a pantry in the train. Even though the new train will halt at two places, the projected time that will be taken to cover the distance between Chandigarh and Amritsar would be the same as the Duronto.

The superfast train that would halt for five minutes in Ludhiana and for three minutes in Jalandhar would cover the distance in four hours and 25 minutes.

The new train has been started as there was much demand for stoppages in Ludhiana and Jalandhar and also because the Duronto didn't prove to be a profitable venture for the railways which had to withdraw one of the two AC coaches because there weren't many people making use of these. P K Sanghi, divisional railway manager (Ambala) said that seeing the demand of the people for a halt in Ludhiana and Jalandhar, they have decided to withdraw the Duronto and start the superfast train which will halt at these two places.

AC double decker train on Delhi-Chandigarh route soon

New Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) To cater to the growing number of passengers between Delhi and Chandigarh, Railways has decided to start an AC double decker train between the two cities.

The 12-coach AC double decker train with fire alarm system is expected to be pressed into service by February next year, a senior Railway Ministry official said.

Really very good news especially for the commuters (daily passengers)
thanks.
